House on Mango Street

The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros

When I asked you to please quotes in each chapter, you mentioned the entire book has quotes. This book doesn't mark the quotes. So, can you please give me the Third chapter quotes that you can find (Boys and Girls)

Here are three main quotes from the chapter. I will try and see if I can find afew more for you later. Your teacher is seriously asking you for "all" the quotes in every chapter????

The boys and girls live in separate worlds. The boys in their universe and we in ours. My brothers for example. They've got plenty to say to me and Nenny inside the house. But outside they can't be seen talking to girls. (3.1)

Nenny is too young to be my friend. She's just my sister and that was not my fault. You don't pick your sisters, you just get them and sometimes they come like Nenny. (3.2)

Someday I will have a best friend all my own. One I can tell my secrets to. One who will understand my jokes without my having to explain them. Until then I am a red balloon, a balloon tied to an anchor. (3.4)
